> Hi Bob, I might be interested in helping you with this. I have limited amount of time though. To help me decide, could you tell me what security properties are *missing* from the design of ZeroNet?
> Sorry if this sounds like a strange question. The reason I ask this, is that the media is awash with random security properties that one can list to sound impressive, but it doesn't mean that the designers or developers are security-conscious or able to respond to new threats or ideas. A list of missing items means the designers/developers are self-aware, responsible to criticism, and also helps better distinguish the innovative aspects of projects.

Oh, one thing you do need to fix at least, is to install zeronet in /usr/share/zeronet (probably) and not /etc/share/zeronet. Python modules (if any) should also be installed following the Debian python guidelines, see:


(I haven't looked more closely to see how much of this applies specifically to zeronet, however.)
